Shifts - Custom request reason
Shifts - Custom request reason. These seem to be limited in the Shifts application to unpaid, vacation, off, sick day and parental leave.

Microsoft Shifts is very basic and needs some meat on the bones. For instance we are trying to use it to request holidays, sickness, and track holiday entitlement and days used. This is something it doesn't do apart from allowing you to raise a request but not then cancel it afterwards. Is this an update that will be coming soon because it is very poor without this facility. Please can you advise. Thank you.
I'm currently trying to get Shifts to be our new holiday tracker for our team however I can't seem to find the tab where it tracks staff holiday entitlement! Does Shifts do this and if so, where can I find it?
For example if one of our staff members had an annual entitlement of 35 days a year and they requested 1 day off, then it would show that they only have 34 days left to use.

Please allow holidays and sicks days to be tracked properly and a report to be made.
Holidays be to entered as a format of half day or full day and then a summary of all the days in the year. It should also have a start and stop days for the users to manager can enter there allowance and employees will require will book time off which automatically will deduct letting them and the manager know how many days left for the year for each person. Sick days tracking to know how many days everyone has taken off and to see sick patterns.
Please integrate holiday allowance and "Teams" to "Outlook Calendar"! Vital to create an effective holiday booking system.

Shifts looks like a great lightweight shift and holiday tracker / authorizer.
I have two requests:
1) Can the ability to manage holiday allocation be added so that users can review their annual allocation and the system can manage requests if their allocation is exceeded.
2) Can the application integrate with PowerBI, so managerial reports of a team's shifts (absence and holiday performance and requests) can be provided?

On Shifts, next to your team name there is a drop-down. Go to Settings and there is an option where you can manage the list of time off options. Is this what you are looking for?
Need Shifts to also track holiday entitlement! For example if a staff member has 35 holidays to use a year and they take a day off their entitlement goes down to 34!
With adjustable dates also as our holiday year runs from April to March!
